    Jules and Jim

    ★★★★★

    Francois Truffaut came into my world in the most brilliant way with not a hint of warning. I had started the second year of my undergrad a week late and barely had enough time to pick up a syllabus before I found myself in a screening room for Jules and Jim. The film left absolutely no impression on me after my initial viewing, or so I thought. As the months passed, however, I found myself reminiscing upon the story that…

    ****Warning, this is less a review of Mulholland Dr. and more a thank you letter to David Lynch for changing my life*****

    No piece of art has ever had as profound an impact on my life than Mulholland Dr. I say, in a very literal way, that Mulholland Dr. changed my life.I had never looked at cinema as an art form before, I actually had hardly looked at cinema before. I grew up in a single parent home with a…

I don't think I'd ever seen Christopher Reeve in anything before this so it was nice to see the guy that spent my childhood on my mother's coffee table (in one magazine or another) in action. Michael Caine is always a joy, no matter how despicable the character may be that he's playing, it's always fun to see him…

    The magic of the first act with the children was really lost during the second act with the adults.

    ★★★

    I'm not sure I'll ever see something as devastating as watching Michael Haneke react to Ingmar Bergman rating Haneke's THE PIANO TEACHER "four stars, not five" by saying "pity" and wanting to leave the room.

    That bit broke my heart.
